This year my oldest daughter and my youngest daughter only have had school on MWF and they both have had Tuesdays and Thursdays off this semester. We started a lovely little tradition called "Stay at home Tuesdays and Stay at home Thursdays" some days we stay at home but others we run errands, go to mass, go out to lunch. We have had some of the most wonderfully enjoyable days I have spent as a mommy. I think that because I am so aware that my time with them is numbered I realize its preciousness. Cassie is 18 and in college, she will be moving out sooner than I want. Sylvia will start kindergarten next year and unless God blesses us with another sweet baby I will end an era in my life - life with little people at home all day.
As I type this I can hear them at the kitchen table playing memory. It is a memory I hope I never forget. They are laughing and having a great time. An 18 year old college student and a 4 year old preschooler - dueling it out!
I am thankful for this time. Next week it will be over - Cassie's schedule changes and she wont be home when Sylvia is, so today is our very last Stay at Home Tuesday. We are going to commemorate the day with mass at noon and Sushi for lunch!
I am thankful to God for this time with my biggest and littlest girls!
